It was announced last week the headquarters is staying in Charlotte. The new CEO is also going to be based there. It was pretty good week, that same day another company also announced they were moving their headquarters to Charlotte.

And then a few weeks back we got the announcement that major healthcare consulting firm Premier Inc. will be moving its HQ's from San Diego to Charlotte, the Radio Shack HQ's is looking into Charlotte as a new home, and we're courting a company for a major manufacturing operation. Not too bad, and this is the sort of diversification we need and that I think we'll see more of in the future. Charlotte has proven itself to be not just a city that's good for banking, but a city that's good for business in general.

It will be interesting to see how long that BofA commitment lasts.

It is truly one of the mysteries of life why any business or person would choose BofA to do business with. At this point they are the poster child for bad coorperate behavior, poor customer service and high fees. I inherited an account there when one of my banks was acquired. While trying to close it on two different occasions I listened to the other tellers say "we don't accept that, we can't do that, no, no, no to every customer waiting in the long line.

Yeah they are a horrible bank to deal with. They have no respect for their customers. I used to work for them and am glad to have left.
